Information is Power 2 – The ICAMS report

Following my article on Sunday with regards to the EU project known as Project Indect, an EU funded project which is just part of a much more widespread global surveillance programme, I have already noticed that some of the links are newly broken, especially to some of the Darpa information, so I am making available here.the full report by ICAMS (International Campaign against Mass Surveillance).

This report (attached at bottom of post) was written and published in April 2005, and is entitled The Emergence of a Global Infrastructure for Mass Registration and Surveillance. It is a 78 page report that provide much more detail than my previous post, but will also give you some idea that this latest EU revelation is not new, it is already 7 years down the road.

I am publishing this report as since my post on Sunday, there has been a lot of interest as recorded in my site stats from Liberty the human rights organisation, the UK Government, US Dept of State, USDOD, International Monetary Fund, Environment Agency, CSC, MOD, Oxford University, Canada Dept of Justice, Cisco Systems, Ford Motor Company, Citicorp Global Information Network, Avon & Somerset Constabulary, Amsterdam University, John Lewis Partnership, Dept of Agriculture NI, and many others, most of which will have vested interests in the very global network of which I write.

This needs to be put together with my article of Sept08 Intelligence Support Systems (ISS) and Lawful Intercept(?)

and this More surveillance, Less privacy – ICO Official Reports
or this The ‘War on Terrorism’ Brings Mass Surveillance

All of this information is currently out there in the public domain, you just need to look for it as I have done.

Is this really the kind of Globalisation that Clegg and Cameron are calling for with their ‘progressive’ politics. We know that the Labour party are on this road, but will the other Parties reject it, or as usual, just ignore it and hope the public wont notice.

The way forward as I see it is to stop these programmes now. Stop them until we as a society have agreed what those limits are, where the safeguards are and agree the way forward. We do not want to stop progress, but progress must never be against the greater good of the people.

But there is something that everyone should always remember

Extreme reform and change that is undertaken without the explicit consent of the people, can only be maintained through force and repression.

The real politics is now between the Authoritarian and the Libertarian.

It is time for you to make your choice.
Authority of the state over everything you do, or the Liberty to make your own choices, and mistakes, in your life.

And the Tories? and the LibDems? Nowhere, but nowhere have they said they will curb or repeal the same laws enacted in the UK.

Yep, those libertarian Tories. They’re really interested in your civil liberties, aren’t they?
